|Sleep tight Metropolis. No matter what trouble comes your way, a powerful hero will protect you. And trouble does come--Big Trouble: A plummeting asteroid...A terrorist targeting transit systems...Deadly radiation...Mad scientists...A criminal clown. But none is a match for the Man of Steel.|
George Reeves returns to put on the hero's cape (and when necessary, the customary eyewear of the mild-mannered reporter) for the steel-bending, bullet-speeding, tall building-leaping excitement of 26 season-two episodes. Noel Neilljoins the series as Lois Lane, the Daily Planet reporter who sometimes suspects that maybe--just maybe--Clark Kent isn't who he says he is. Powerful fun!
Editor's NoteContaining one of the most instantly recognizable intro sequences to a TV show ("Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!"), THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN was the first attempt to bring the comic book character to television screens. Great cinematic characters such as Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and of course Clark Kent himself were established on the show, with Kent attempting to live an anonymous existence as a reporter for the Daily Planet by day, but transforming into Superman, the last survivor from the planet Krypton, when trouble comes calling. George Reeves plays the Man of Steel in this complete collection of episodes from the second season of the show.
